Course Description

In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 (p) regulations, this training is required for individuals who plan to work in a area that is defined as a RCRA Treatment Storage or Disposal (TSD) facility. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion accepted by regulatory agencies.
Facilities that have the potential for an emergency to occur due to an uncontrolled release of hazardous substances or hazardous raw materials are required to provide training required under HAZWOPER 29 CFR 1910.120 paragraph (q). Employers who have hazardous waste storage areas must provide training required under either 29 CFR 1910.120 (p)(8) or (q) for those areas.
The course consists of modules (approximately 86 modules) with the use of multimedia components for an engaging experience. This course is intended for RCRA TSD site personnel, e.g., supervisors, environmental professionals, workers, decon personnel etc. The initial training for new employees exposed to health hazards or hazardous substances at TSD facilities must be 24 hours. Refresher training must be for eight hours annually. The training must be incorporated into the employer’s safety and health program.

 

24 hour HAZWOPER Training for RCRA TSD Operations

Did you know that there are at least 3 different 24 hour HAZWOPER courses? OSHA requires that employers train adequately their employees for any job. Please be sure you get the right HAZWOPER Training for the right job. The RCRA corrective action process consists of three primary activities: characterizing the release, selecting a remedy from identified alternatives, and implementing the selected remedy until the desired remediation goals are achieved. To design a process capable of collecting the information necessary to achieve these primary objectives, the HAZWOPER employer relies upon not only this guidance document but others prepared by EPA that which describe all aspects of the corrective action process.

Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.

Certificates

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a total of 3 certificates. An email with an e-certificate will be sent to you or your designee immediately upon completing the course and the original certificates (8×10 and pvc wallet card) will arrive in the mail.

Support

Includes 24/7 U.S. Based support. An experienced and highly qualified instructor is available to you throughout the training process. Our toll free hotline or email will allow access to some of the finest instructors in the U.S.

Duration

24 hours (OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training Requirement) Note: OSHA requires the 24 hour course will take a minimum of 24 hours of actual study time. Anything less will not comply with the OSHA standard. Our course allows you to login and logout at any time increment in order to fit your schedule. When you logout, the course will be bookmarked so you can begin where you left off. The study timer will also accrue your time and will begin where you left off in the course.

Continuing Education Units (CEU’s)

This course has been awarded 4.01 Industrial Hygiene CM Points by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) – approval number 13334. This course is eligible for 2.00 Continuance of Certification (COC) points from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP).

Trust the Experience of a Highly Regarded HAZWOPER Training Provider

NET has provided HAZWOPER training to thousands of clients including the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and many private sector companies. NET was also the exclusive HAZWOPER training provider to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) during the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill. We were also referred by the FWS to the U.S. Coast Guard to train their personnel for HAZWOPER operations. In addition, we assisted NASA and the U.S. EPA during the Space Shuttle Columbia Debris Recovery efforts. All of our onsite instructors are former U.S. OSHA Training Institute instructors.
